Two Malians have been arrested in the north of the country over a deadly attack on a beach resort in Ivory Coast claimed by an Al-Qaeda group, security sources said Sunday.

The two were arrested on Friday and Saturday after indications they “actively participated” in the March 13 militant assault on three hotels and a beach in Grand-Bassam that left 19 people dead, one of the sources told AFP.
